In favor of a gun licensing program

Williamson on Weapon Registry: In favor of a gun licensing program.


Several 2020 Democrats have endorsed a federal licensing program for gun owners and purchasers.

Gun laws are driven by profits of gun manufacturers

In terms of guns, I certainly understand that it's a Second Amendment right. And we know that our gun policies in the United States are not driven by Second Amendment. That's just an illusion. We don't have commonsense gun safety legislation because, God forbid, it should cut into the short-term profits of gun manufacturers. That is immoral. The majority of the American people want universal background checks. The majority of the American people want to outlaw bump stocks. The majority of the American people want to get these military assault rifles out of the hands of the average citizen.

And until the American people realize that we need to get rid of the nefarious influence of money on our political system, if you want commonsense gun safety legislation, you're going to not only have to vote for a president who stands for that, you're going to have to vote for congresspeople who stand for that and senators who stand for that. This issue is in your hands, not just mine.

Universal background checks including at gun shows
